"The time has arrived in America for the Democratic Party to get out of the shadow of the state's rights and walk forthrightly into the bright sunshine of human rights." (1948 Democratic National Convention)
"Freedom is not real to me when I have it and my brother does not, when my nation enjoys it and another does not, when my race achieved it and others have not." (1967)
"I have enjoyed my life, its disappointments outweighed by its pleasures. I have loved my country in a way that some people consider sentimental and out of style. I still do. And I remain an optimist with joy, without apology about this country and about the American experiment in democracy."
"It was once said that the moral test of Government is how that Government treats those who are in the dawn of life, children; those who are in the twlight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy, and the handicapped." (1977)
